The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament and the Archdiocese of Detroit are excited to announce a partnership with MHT Housing Inc. to transform the Archdiocesan-owned vacant lot on Woodward between Calvert and Glynn — across the street from the Cathedral — into affordable housing with retail and space for community programs, classes, and other vital neighborhood services. This building will be called The Cathedral Arts Apartments.

The property will be owned by a new joint venture entity established in partnership between MHT Housing Inc. and the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament. It will be managed by MHT Management, LLC one of the largest individual landlords in Detroit and with 30,000 residents in a variety of developments throughout the State of Michigan
The Cathedral Apartments will feature a single four-story building with 53 two-bedroom units and approximately 6,000 square feet of commercial retail space. All of the apartment units will be low-income ranging from 30% of Area Median Income to 80% of Area Median Income. The approximate range of incomes serviced is $21,600 to $57,600. Sixteen of the units will be subsidized with Project Based Section-8 Vouchers from the Detroit Housing Commission, offering further affordability for these units.
Construction broke ground in April 2023 with completion expected in 12-15 months and occupancy to begin in the Fall of 2024.
